The Hoarse Whisperer by Jenny Ortuoste
Which of the champion-class fillies of the land owns the fleetest feet?The answer was revealed last Easter Sunday, April 8, at Santa Ana Park in Makati City , at the running of the Philippine Racing Commission (Philracom)-sponsored Three-Year-Old Fillies Stakes.
Ten high-quality thoroughbreds – Condoleeza, Flynow, Hot Shower, My Neneng, Que Fresca, Sophie’s Fortune, Treasured Ack, Lyanjonik, Cats On Fire, and Miss Victory – contended for the top purse of P780,000 over 1500 meters.
Condoleeza alone among these entries had a good juvenile career, seeing action in last year’s Philracom Juvenile Fillies series and in the MARHO Breeders’ Cup.PHF, or the Pinoy Horse Fanatics, will showcase a full slate of trophy races that include the PHF Founders’ Cup, the Romulo Henson Memorial Trainers’ Challenge, the Ricardo G. Aquino Cup, and many others. ***
